Braskem, a reference in the petrochemical industry, announces its association with Instituto Combustível Legal (ICL), aimed at promoting discussions with society, government, the judiciary and lawmakers about the importance of fighting irregular fuel trade, among other issues in the market.
"Braskem is a relevant player as it supplies supplementary products to the Brazilian fuel market. Our production, petrochemical and taxation expertise can add value to the industry", says Isabel Figueiredo, Vice-President of Vinyls and Specialties at Braskem.
The industry is currently one of the major tax collectors in Brazil. As such, it is extremely important to strengthen the supervisory agencies in order to create an environment that has greater legal certainty and simplified taxation, which can help to bring down the rate of tax evasion.
As an ICL member, Braskem will join forces to build a more ethical environment in the fuel industry, a key role in developing a segment that is fair for everyone. "ICL's role is very important, and Braskem, as a member, will strive to create mechanisms so that the sector is able to develop in the most secure and promising way, while sustainably following ethical and legal standards", concludes Isabel.
Braskem's initiative to join ICL aligns with its ESG (environment, social and governance) strategy and will contribute towards advancing its performance as regards these pillars. The company, aiming to be among the world's leading sustainable development companies, is committed to strengthening such practices, as well as building lasting relationships with various audiences, such as clients, team members, suppliers and partners.
